The success of Be Alright has claimed Dean many #1’s including the #1 spot on Billboards Emerging Artist Chart and #1 Most Shazamed artist in the USA.
A Place We Knew encapsulates the bittersweet memories of past relationships. “All the songs were written through relationships I’d been in and houses I used to live in and hotel rooms,” said Lewis. Written and recorded all over the world, Dean collaborated with multiple producers Edd Holloway, Nick Atkinson, John Castle and Dann Hume along with Sydney based producer Dylan Nash whom Lewis refers to as “almost like the co-producer for the whole album”.
Since announcing Dean’s national album tour, his first headline Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney shows have sold out and due to popular demand second shows have been added. Dean will be performing songs from his new album as well as his debut GOLD selling EP Same Kind of Different.
